    Sunlight glitters on the ethane seas of Titan. [ images from NASA ]
    "The sunglint, also called a specular reflection, is the bright area near the 11 o'clock position at upper left. This mirror-like reflection, known as the specular point, is in the south of Titan's largest sea, Kraken Mare, just north of an island archipelago separating two separate parts of the sea. ... The highest resolution data from this flyby -- the area seen immediately to the right of the sunglint -- cover the labyrinth of channels that connect Kraken Mare to another large sea, Ligeia Mare. Ligeia Mare itself is partially covered in its northern reaches by a bright, arrow-shaped complex of clouds. The clouds are made of liquid methane droplets, and could be actively refilling the lakes with rainfall."

    This photo was taken by the talented and award winning Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten at the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan. A Japanese snow monkey (also known as a Japanese macaque) who mischieviously stole a tourist's iPhone at the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Japan.
    In an interview with 500px, van Oosten explained circumstances surrounding the shot.
    "We were standing close to the edge of the hot spring, when one of the tourists started taking shots with her iPhone, moving the phone closer to the macaque after each shot.
    Suddenly, the macaque grabbed the iPhone from her hands and quickly moved away towards the middle of the hot spring!
    The owner screamed in agony, but the macaque was too fascinated by its new toy to notice.
    The minutes that followed were downright hilarious. Monkeys already resemble humans in so many ways, but when they're holding an iPhone, the similarities are almost scary. At some point, it even managed to let the built-in flash of the iPhone go off. When the macaque decided to do some serious underwater testing, the owner of the phone almost fainted. Meanwhile, I was fully aware that this would result in some of the most original snow monkey shots ever

    Nature presents the top 100 papers cited by others, a "paper mountain" of science's greatest hits.
    The exercise revealed some surprises, not least that it takes a staggering 12,119 citations to rank in the top 100 — and that many of the world’s most famous papers do not make the cut. A few that do, such as the first observation1 of carbon nanotubes (number 36) are indeed classic discoveries. But the vast majority describe experimental methods or software that have become essential in their fields.
    ... The colossal size of the scholarly literature means that the top-100 papers are extreme outliers. Thomson Reuter’s Web of Science holds some 58 million items. If that corpus were scaled to Mount Kilimanjaro, then the 100 most-cited papers would represent just 1 centimetre at the peak. Only 14,499 papers — roughly a metre and a half’s worth — have more than 1,000 citations (see ‘The paper mountain’). Meanwhile, the foothills comprise works that have been cited only once, if at all — a group that encompasses roughly half of the items.

    The most frequently-cited paper, with 305,148 citations, is "Protein measurement with the folin phenol reagent," by Lowry, Rosebrough, Farr and Randall.

    This is a list developed by the folks at the real-estate website Trulia of the 25 worst cities to populate in the event of a zombie apocalypse. New York is number two on the list, followed by Newark, Boston, and Washington D.C. Trulia calculated the survivability of the cities using the following criteria: highest walk score, lowest hardware store density, highest hospital density, and most congestion.

    The Charted Collection of Cameras” is  an 27" x 39" art print by Pop Chart Lab featuring a “collection of over two hundred cameras from 1839-2014, ranging from the first daguerreotypes to the latest digital delights.”
    "Entire lineages of Kodaks, Nikons, Canons and more are captured here, as well as the new guard of in-pocket devices like the Lytro and (gasp!) iPhone—and for further detail, each apparatus is affixed with icons indicating camera type, from 35mm to SLR to newer “integrated” models. The perfect finishing touch for the wall of your studio or home, this panoramic panoply of picture-takers is the ideal gift for the serious shutterbug."
